Escape with your pooch on a dog friendly holiday…

Dog Friendly Cottages

For those of us lucky enough to have a four-legged friend in the family, we all know the stress that going on holiday can trigger. Can you leave them with a trusted friend or family member? Is there a dog sitter you can rely on to look after your precious pup?

Fortunately at Cofton, you don’t have to worry about leaving your pooch on their lonesome as we cater specifically for dogs! Whether it’s our dog friendly holiday homes or allowing dogs on our touring and camping pitches, we love welcoming dogs into our glorious corner.

Days out with dogs

It’s not just us, though. The whole area is packed with wonderful, dog friendly activities. We’ve got dog friendly beaches on our doorstep, perfect for a run on the sand or a swim in the sea. But our pick would be to head into Dartmoor and savour the world famous views. The amazing thing about Dartmoor is how everyone experiences it differently; there’s such a vast landscape to explore that you’ll find your own perfect sanctuary away from the stress of everyday life.

For a dog, it must be heaven! A place with so many different smells, landscapes and terrains = a pawsome day out for dogs!


Dog-friendly pubs

If you’re planning to head off on a jolly around Devon you won’t need to worry, either. There’s a wide selection of dog friendly pubs and restaurants in Devon (including our own onsite pub and restaurant) where they have bowls of water to refresh your four-legged friends in the scorching heat.

Crofton Dog Show

Here at Cofton, every summer we have our big American Car Show. It’s one of the best times of the year where we get some of the coolest muscle cars to cruise around Dawlish. However, it’s not only the cars that are on show…

We also run our annual ‘Crofton Dog Show’ where we judge the coolest canine in Cofton. So, if you think you’ve got the best looking bulldog or the coolest collie, why not show us next year? All the money raised will be going to a local dog charity.
